- Star football players Blaise Matuidi and Daniele Rugani have fully recovered from the deadly coronavirus
- Both Juventus superstars tested positive for the virus last month and had been in self-isolation
- The two players have now been cleared of the virus, having undergone tests twice to ensure they are clear
Juventus stars Daniele Rugani and Blaise Matuidi have both made a full recovery from the deadly coronavirus pandemic.
The 25-year-old Italian defender was the first to contract the virus and about one week later, the French World Cup star also tested positive for Covid-19.
Juve shared the latest development on their official website, disclosing that the players were tested twice and both results came out negative.
The Allianz Stadium outfit also added that the pair would no longer need to self-isolate as they are no longer contagious.
"Daniele Rugani and Blaise Matuidi underwent, as per protocol, a double-check with diagnostic tests (swabs) for the Coronavirus-Covid 19.
"The tests came back with negative results. The players have, therefore, recovered and are no longer subjected to the home isolation regime."
The Old Lady will now have the full complement of their players once they are recalled to training ahead of the league's resumption.
At the moment, Maurizio Sarri's men are at the summit of the Serie A table with just one point better than Lazio after 26 rounds of games, and what this means is that the league is far from over.
Briefly.co.za earlier reported that Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta and Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi are among the over 165 000 people who have recovered from the deadly coronavirus ravaging the world at the moment.
The duo tested positive for Covid-19 earlier this month and they were subjected to self-isolation in a bid for them not to infect others around them.
Reports now have it that they have fully recovered from the infection, which broke out last year.
